    The correct way is to have an absolute melt down with a few choice words thrown in. Be sure it’s loud enough for the neighbors to hear.

    That way one of the neighbors can walk over and unclip it in 3 seconds. Lol

    I got it off... (“Phrasing.” “Are we still doing phrasing?”), but even though I know how it works I still mangled it.

    If it won’t tighten up. Cut off the mangled part. Then run a zip-tie around and through the hole where the mangled part went in.
